Just avoid this place. They shouldn't be in business. A disgrace to Uruguy and Southern South American cuisine in general. I am not a food snob, but this place is terrible. I will post a picture of my provoleta (which came thin, burnt, stuck to the pan...by far the worst I've ever had). I will also post a picture of... More

Old fashioned place, but clean. Staff were helpful, but little English spoken. After several days of steak, decided to try a pizza - a mistake. The base was so thick and doughy. Prices were also in the high side. Overall not the best of experiences. Also the place was freezing .

We thought the restaurant looked nice so we stopped for dinner, but the experience was pretty terrible. There was a woman outside sweeping who saw us sit down, but 5-10 minutes later we still didn't have menus and she was still outside with us. We saw a stack nearby so we grabbed our own menus, and at that point the... More

This was our third and best meal in Colonia.Best meat cooked, good serving, nice vibe around and the most reasonable price.We wish we could had all our meals over there..Highly recommended... A TIP pay in Colonia with a credit card and have almost 20% discount of your meal...

I have eaten in a lot of places in the world, but this one of the worst places I have ever eaten. It looks nice and the people are nice but when you order the house wine you know the rest must also be bad. And when you get the meal you will be surprised how bad it is.

We went here as a family for dinner one night. The food was not as bad as others say, but that probably has to do with what we ordered. Two of us ordered a milanesa and fries for two people, and since it's tasty, fried meat, it's hard to do wrong. The other person got shrimp pasta and did indeed... More

This place is on a corner of one of the mains streets and (half of it) has a good look outside.However, it is most definitely NOT worth the price. You might think this is a very good place at first, but, when you start to eat, you'll know it is not all that. The food is not bad, but has... More

This was the most expensive meal of our trip and the worst food i have ever tried to eat. The price is absurd. To put it in perspective, we paid more here than one of Buenos Aires's best Italian restaurants and one of its most famous Armenian restaurants combined. Avoid at all costs!!!!

Stopped here as it looks inviting from the outside and we were desperate for wifi. But it's really bad and terribly over-priced. We paid 10 GBP equivalent for a frozen pizza. Tried to complain about the 'congelado' pizza and this was shrugged off by the waiting staff. Just avoid the place.

My wife and I stopped by for lunch while visiting Colonia and the service was very good but the food is not anything special. I think we made the same mistake as many others, the building is very nice and crowded, but the food does not measure up. They are a pizzeria so we decided to try a pizza it... More
